She's an Elven Princess from Dark Sword Miniatures, sculpted by Jeff Grace, cast in pewter and is 32mm heroic scale. I think the lines on this figure are good and the overall impression is one of elegance.
The skirt was difficult for me and I stripped the paint on this piece on 3 seperate occaisions in order to achieve what I wanted. The camera doesn't pick up the amount of shading that is really on the skirt. But I do know that I could have gone still higher on the lightest points.
Jefff Grace did a marvelous job of sculptng this face and it was a joy to paint. I managed to put some highlighting on the lips this time.
Now I know you have noticed that I used a glossy finish on this figure and some of you have already exressed your distaste for glossy finishes. I used a matte finish at first and I hated it, so I changed it to glossy.
On the painting table right now are figures that represent De, The Arse Licking Cat and myself. Following those three, I have 2 others that I think we'll all have a great deal of fun with, but I'm keeping their identities secret until I post them.
The total number of figures that I'm painting for fellow bloggers is now up to 12. Matthew, D4 and Dan - we've been following each other for a long time and I want to tell you that I bought your figures a couple of weeks ago. I hope you don't mind.
Now some of you out there have inspired me to try to create my own scenery from scratch. I went to my local hobby store and bought some raw materials. I'm going to start with something simple like a crumbling wall,some vignettes and work my way up to building Shenanigans Pub, the headquarters for the Alliance.
I'd like to thankThe Dark Templar for mailing me some of his spare figures. My favorite of the lot is Wayland the legendary swordsmith. He'll look nice in a vignette I think.
It's Friday folks and the world has gone to hell in a handbasket. So this weekend, tell the world to feck off and do something that makes you happy. I know I will.
